When I ask brides to describe their ideal bridal look, the majority will include the phrase, ‘ dewy,’ preferably like J.Lo. And why not? She’s known for her dewy skin, bronze glow and nude lips. Super sexy! She’s also known for the arsenal she travels with, her glam squad, to maintain that perfect J.Lo. glow.
Without a glam squad on hand, dewy can turn into shiny disco ball real quick, especially on your wedding day. Be aware that you’ll be under lots of light, flash, possibly wearing heavier attire, maybe running around, perhaps anxious – all amounting to more shine on your face than usual. Bottom line, don’t over do the ‘dew,’ and be prepared to maintain it.
Generally, I either create an all over glow or strategically highlight areas. I recommend the latter for bridal makeup. But, if you have normal to drier skin, smooth in texture, you can opt for an all over glow.I don’t recommend this for ladies for oily, combination, acne prone or uneven skin.
Oxygenating facials the day before are great for a glow. Otherwise here are my favorite products for an all over glow and a bronze glow:
The flash balm is Clarin’s infamous, classic product. It literally puts the life back into tired, dehydrated skin-perfect for the bride that can’t sleep the night before . It is a balm, thicker than a moisturizer. This product moisturizers, tightens up your skin, primes and leaves you with a subtle glow. It’s a 3 in 1. I would recommend applying it under your makeup. Although some ladies apply it after to highlight certain areas, while others use it as a mask.
